Using liquid Castile soap is ecological, efficient, versatile and affordable!

 

Liquid Castile soap is a soap made from a plant-base oil. It is a concentrated natural soap, biodegradable, vegan, not tested on animals, and often local.

 

Liquid Castile soap can be used to clean just about anything! From the floors of your home to your pet and your baby’s hair. It’s truly an all-purpose cleaner.

 

This concentrated soap is ideal for camping or at the cottage because it is biodegradable and can be used for both the shower and washing dishes.

7- Washing your pet

Since Castile soap is biodegradable, it is the perfect soap for washing the dog outside on a sunny day! Since Castile soap is concentrated, simply use a small amount on the wet coat, rub and rinse.
